Outbox, Moringa school graduate their first batch

In April this year, Outbox and Moringa School announced that they had entered a partnership to run a 5-week full-time introduction to programming course.

"Outbox, in collaboration with Kenya based Moringa School – launched today [in April] the first in a series of coding boot camps focused on imparting industry relevant software engineering skills to young people," they announced in the press release then.

They then embarked on a recruitment drive that saw them take in and train 15 participants. Last week, Outbox - via its Social Media channels - announced that these had successfully graduated from their program.

"Outbox EDU Moringa  School Prep was focused on introducing individuals with limited or no experience to the fundamentals of Computer Programming. We look forward to moving these on the #OutboxEDU Moringa Core program that will start soon."

"Today, we achieved a great milestone. Fifteen awesome young people graduated from our first #OutboxEDU Moringa Prep program that started in June," the tech hub wrote on its Facebook on 14/07/2018.

Adding that they are "very very proud of our students, and what they have been able to achieve in only five weeks."

Those who participated in the programme undertook a couple of tasks, were subjected to boot camps as well as attending events where they interfaced with more senior developers.

For example, on 4th July, Amy Robinson, a senior software product manager at Fenix International, spoke to the batch. According to Outbox, she is "managing and working with diverse teams of software engineers, across multiple geographies and time zone" and spoke about her story.

Additionally, they were given some projects to work on. "To wrap up their participation, they developed projects to showcase their new skillsets to the class," Outbox wrote.
